Abstract:

The probability distribution associated with the multisample CMRR generalized sequential sampling process are obtained by using an analogy with a single run model. Some statistical features are also discussed. The CaptureMarcReleaseRecapture CMRR sampling process is used whenever informative data must be obtained in order to estimate the unknown size, N, of a finite and closed population. The sampling design for such process is described in this document. Consider a population of finite size, N, such that during the study time it changes neither in size nor in form that is, the population is closed during the study time.
